“It was really quite depressing to see the horribly dirty tanks these amazing creatures are kept in. I have never been to an aquarium and seen dead fish in multiple tanks. There is clearly not upkeep or maintenence being done here. ”

“Really good collection of different types of fishes and also maintained well with nominal ticket price. Just AC is not operated properly which sometimes make us feel suffocated inside when it is overcrowded.”
